Celebrating 75 Years of Serving Nevada’s Legal, Business, Government, and Civic Communities

McDonald Carano Provides Full Grant Donation to
UNLV Boyd School of Law’s Public Interest Law Association

McDonald Carano proudly continues to serve as a Full Grant donor in our annual support of the student-led Public Interest Law Association at the UNLV Boyd School of Law. Through direct grant donations and an annual charity auction, PILA raises funds to provide financial grants that make it possible for law students to explore otherwise unpaid public interest career opportunities during the summer.

McDonald Carano joins Boyd School of Law in placing a high value on public interest work and ensuring access to justice which is essential to a strong, inclusive, and vibrant community. PILA is only able to fulfill its mission with the support of generous donors. We hope you will participate in this important opportunity to invest in students and in our community.

McDonald Carano encourages you to join PILA’s 23rd Annual Silver State Auction from 6pm-9pm on February 24, either in-person (at the Blind Center of Nevada) or virtually. There will be an online silent auction through pila.givesmart.com and an in-person live auction, which includes a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, a live band, bowling, and plenty of photo opportunities. “It is shaping up to be a wonderful event and is a fun opportunity for the community to come together, raise money for PILA’s public interest grants, and honor local leaders!” Sara Gordon, Interim Dean, William S. Boyd School of Law University of Nevada, Las Vegas
